Foodie Field Trip: Seattle

BIG NEWS: At this very moment, Feel Good Foodies (AKA Alycia and myself) are in-flight on our way to Seattle for the 2014 InternationalFood Bloggers Conference (IFBC).



This opportunity actually came to us through our employer, Edelman, and a program they offer called Edelman Escape. According to Edelman, Edelman Escape offers U.S. employees with an escape from the duties of everyday work to pursue a dream, goal or experience that will enrich their lives. Alycia and I have Edelman to thank for our friendship, and for this blog, so when we heard about the program we decided that it was absolutely necessary to apply.

For those of you not familiar with the story of Feel Good Foodies, allow me to provide some background. Alycia and I met on our very first day at Edelman in August 2010. While bonding over our first meal together during orientation (gratis pizza, of course), we realized our shared passion for healthy living, cooking and exploring the world through our taste buds. We became close friends quickly, and shared many recipes and extravagant meals together before forming Feel Good Foodies in 2012.

Through this trip, we hope to reawaken our passions for cooking at home, explore a new city to share with our readers, and enhance our writing and digital skills. We’re looking forward to linking you up to new bloggers that we meet along the way, and getting fresh ideas that we’ll share through to the blog over the course of this trip, and beyond. We’d like to thank Edelman for this amazing opportunity, and also Piggyback Letterpress for arming us with our fresh new business cards. Check ‘em out:
Seriously, these guys are awesome. They took the time to brainstorm design with us, and we came out with a new logo that is a true collaborative representation of the blog (thanks Lee)!

Stay tuned for live conference updates over the next week, Seattle restaurant reviews, and more! Maybe a surprise second stop on the road home? Hmm…

Feel good,
